Situated just 13 miles apart on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, the towns of Browning and East Glacier are bordered on the west by the magnificent mountains and lakes of Glacier National Park. Rolling plains and farmland, much of the grassland never broken by a plow, lie to the east and northeast. Browning is home to the Museum of the Plains Indian, which houses a comprehensive collection of artifacts from the tribes of the Northern Plains.
